Tsvetan Bachvaroff
Research Assistant Professor
Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology
My research is focused on dinoflagellate evolution with special emphasis on the parasitic dinoflagellates about which we know very little. I use large scale sequencing and phylogenetic methods to describe the evolutionary history of different types of genes in dinoflagellates.
